Aloha Friday - Summer

Hello!  I'm participating in Aloha Friday, where I ask a simple question for you to answer and Two Question Thursday (same idea...only TWO questions). 

The entire summer here in Texas has been in the triple digits (just about).  If I were in charge of schools, summer for schools in Texas would be from the 2nd week of April through the first week of July (to include independence day). That would give us more time to enjoy the cool months, and still have a little summer overlap with other states.

So here's my questions...

  1. How's the weather been this summer where you are?
  2. If you could choose when summer vacation would be (any time...wouldn't even have to be 3 months in a row...could be a month here and there), would you change the dates of summer?

You can post your answers in a comment below.  :-)


  1. Our summer has been very mild so far. Normally this time of the year we are having triple digit temps but so far we have barely reached 90 for more than a day or two.

    For schools it would be nice to have a little cooler weather for vacations, your idea is good.

  2. It's moderately hot and humid. I don't like the heat of summer. I much prefer milder temps in spring and late fall. I'd say, if I could choose summer to not get any warmer than the upper 70s to low 80s, then I'd be happy as a lark. =D

  3. Surprised to have such a cold summer in California this year. It didn't get warm until July! I am looking forward to a warm August, though it cools down a lot at night.
    I like that summer vacation is during summer. Nice to let the kids outside when they are off, otherwise they or ME will go stir crazy in the house. :-)

  4. Hi.
    We were over, as in well over, 90 for the entire month of July. Actually, I prefer a stay-cation for many reasons including, I have my own pool

    Have a great Friday!

  5. It's been raining all month! And it's hot and humid and rainy.

    I would love to vacation in fall because it's warm and not so cold.


  6. It's been hotter than normal here this summer too - it started back in May, which is really odd for us, and doesn't seem to be planning to let up any time soon. I would love it if there was maybe a month of no school during the fall or winter when we could go do something and not wilt in the heat! :)

  7. We have had a week or two of really hot weather...but it has mostly been moderate or even cold. I like summer when it is :)

  8. Summer hasn't been as hot as other past summers. Nothing even close to 90 degrees yet. Thank goodness since I don't do well in hot temperatures!
